Iran Fires A Dozen Ballistic Missiles On US Consulate In Iraq With A Stern Warning Of ‘Harsher Response’ To Come Against ‘Zionist Regime’
A US defense official said there was no damage and no casualties at the US consulate, contradicting statements by Iraqi officials who said the new consulate building sustained several missile hits. The US condemned what it called an “outrageous attack against Iraqi sovereignty and display of violence,” the official said in a statement. Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi responded to the attack, tweeting: “The aggression which targeted the dear city of Erbil and spread fear amongst its inhabitants is an attack on the security of our people. I discussed these developments with the KRG PM. Our security forces will investigate and stand firm against any threats towards our people.”

Today, the IRGC, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, has taken credit for last night’s bombing of the US Consulate in Erbil, Iraq, claiming they were targeting ‘secret Mossad bases’ of Israel that were hidden there. Mossad bases in Iraq? Sure, it’s possible, but it is likely that that was the excuse needed to show Iranian solidarity with Russia in the ongoing invasion of the Ukraine. Just imagine if China steps up and starts “supporting Russia”, imagine what that would be like. Of course, it always comes back to Israel every time.
Meanwhile in Israel, speculation is growing that Russia Ukraine peace talks might be held in Jerusalem, maybe with Emmanuel Macron or Prince Mohammed bin Zayed as mediator? Sounds about right to me when you’re talking about the end times. One thing’s for sure, though, whatever this thing is it’s not going away anytime soon.
